    Just a few days ago at work, I overheard a colleague talk about how Hitler manipulated an entire nation It is a pet thesis of mine that this was not the case, that people knew, or could have known, precisely what they were getting themselves into Of course, Hitler lied He lied about helping big business, he lied about helping the worker, and he lied about respecting the Reichskonkordat, which he broke ten days after it was signed However, all that is to be expected Politicians lie, especial Just a few days ago at work, I overheard a colleague talk about how Hitler manipulated an entire nation It is a pet thesis of mine that this was not the case, that people knew, or could have known, precisely what they were getting themselves into Of course, Hitler lied He lied about helping big business, he lied about helping the worker, and he lied about respecting the Reichskonkordat, which he broke ten days after it was signed However, all that is to be expected Politicians lie, especially popular ones Obama didn t close Guantanom, Trump did not imprison Hillary, and Hitler, despite his explicit promises, sold out to the Soviets Nothing to see here His lies may have been particularly egregious, but that s only a question of degree.Yet, everyone knew that Hitler was militaristic The SA was outwardly modeled after the military, and in Mein Kampf, Hitler constantly praised the military Do you expect such a man to keep the peace Likewise, everyone knew Hitler wanted the Jews gone, even if they didn t know about the Holocaust per se Everyone knew he saw Jews as subhumans and destroyers of civilization, because he talked openly about that Is it any surprise he mistreated them The Nazi Connection deals with another topic that Hitler, and the Nazis as a whole, were shockingly honest about Eugenics Stylistically, this book is weak, and you won t find a great depth of thought in it Apparently, K hl rushed the book out, and it shows, except in his meticulous research, all of which is sourced If you re working on your own book about the Nazis, or you want to get an overview of the facts before you come to your own conclusions, this is the book for you K hl narrates how relations between the Nazis and eugenicists around the globe were, and comes to the conclusion that they were quite cordial England, the US and Nazi Germany were the triumvirate of eugenics, with the US beingradical than England, and Nazi Germany eventually becomingradical than the US, but all three were in it and approved of each others policies Some eugenicists went as far as to praise the low rate of death resulting from compulsory sterilization of women in Nazi Germany 0,4 percent, a few thousand women in total Eugenics was the state of the art at its time, it was not widely disparaged, beloved figures like Teddy Roosevelt and Winston Churchill spoke in support of it, and when the Church urged people to please not kill mental retards, it gathered angry remarks for holding back human progress Sounds familiar It should.As this book is quite tedious for its length and not at all a fun read, I would only recommend it for historians of the period, but to them without qualifications, concerning the particular topic it deals with

    The definitive book to read to understand the connections between German, American, and British eugenicists and how eugenics thrives today He moves from the progression and incubation of scientific racism in the states on to the trans Atlantic ties that innovated Nazi racial hygienists They justified their atrocities by citing American sterilization laws at the Nuremberg Doctors Trials, and American prosecutors were sympathetic to this The concluding chapters prove how their American counte The definitive book to read to understand the connections between German, American, and British eugenicists and how eugenics thrives today He moves from the progression and incubation of scientific racism in the states on to the trans Atlantic ties that innovated Nazi racial hygienists They justified their atrocities by citing American sterilization laws at the Nuremberg Doctors Trials, and American prosecutors were sympathetic to this The concluding chapters prove how their American counterparts rehabilitated them swiftly after WWII while they lied about being associated with the worst crimes of Nazi Germany, a very common trope K hl s research dismantles the mythology of the few scientists who got out of control by carefully analyzing those he classified as mainline , reform , and socialist eugenicists American eugenicists desires to create a purified national body were only sullied by the logical conclusion of what the practices and ideology meant mass killings and eventually the Holocaust Do not expect to receive political analysis readymade for you from this book Its strongest point is that it is important reference material put in one book that is too often diffuse K hl presents extensive documentation, and I look forward to connecting the criminals he names with the existing organizations that purport to be kinder, friendlier eugenicists in the 21st century for my own research

    Puts the US squarely in the middle of Hitler s experiments Tracks how the programs were funded and who wanted them done A good collection of scientific thought around the idea of forced natural selection No one was innocent.
